So … what happened? All of a sudden it’s 2009, practically 2010!
Well, shortly after the power outage described below, Christmas happened, followed by FIRST Robotics Build Season (aptly named Lunacy), which occupied my life January through early March, then my Number 2 son got his wish and earned a slot in the US Air Force Academy (following Number 1 son), then came a fun-filled weekend in Atlanta with the FIRST team (many stories there!), then AP Exam time, then triple graduation (USAFA in Colorado, BG and Nashua Catholic here at home), then a kidnap trip to Florida to see a shuttle launch (or not … fuel leak!), then a massive effort getting a microwave oven installed over the stove, then a trip to Albuquerque to help Number 1 son set up a homestead, then no football camp for the first time in 8 years, then school starts, FIRST starts, Cardinal Chaos, Thanksgiving, and … tomorrow is December.
No apologies (not sure who’s out there, really), but perhaps I’ll tell some of the above stories in detail.
